with its work. It expects to be able
to make a report some time during the
coming week. The belief Is expressed
that the club will be able to find an
active committee to manage' the re

committee feel provision should be
made to employ some one to conduct
the carnival. It Is probable the prelim
inary committee will recommend such
action when It flies Its report. That
